THE JUNIOR-SENIOR PROM
PROVED A DECIDED SUCCESS
Brilliant Affair Climax of Season—
Guests From All Points of South
Attend Annual Function.
On Saturday evening. May 6th, the
annual Junior-Senior Prom was given
by the Juniors in honor of Salem’s
Seniors. The alfair took place on the
campus, lovely in its rose decorations,
and with its winding paths and natural
foliage. The guests began to arrive
at eight-thirty and were welcomed in
Main Hall by Dr. and Mrs. Howard E.
Rondthaler, Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Heath,
Miss Lula May Stipe, Miss Margaret
Albright of the faculty; Miss Ruth
Crowell, president of the Junior class,
Dr. Guy M. Masten, Miss Elizabeth
Gillespie, president of the Senior
class, and Mr. William Wright.
The promenade began at eight-
forty-five and consisted of twelve ten-
minute dates. The handsome date
books were of blue suede tooled with
the Salem College coat-of-arms. The
campus surpassed all previous records
in beauty. The upper court was never
more attractive, w’ith its fountain,
surrounded by a wealth of shrubbery,
its natural foliage and rose-shaded
lights. The pergola, under which
punch was served throughout the
evening, was covered with roses. The
entire campus was a veritable garden.
Miss Ruth Rogers, disguised as a
fortune-teller, foretold the fates of
Supper was served at ten-thirty
o’clock under a canopy done in pastel
shades and festooned with roses., The
tables were arranged like the petals
of a flower, the center of which was
formed by a large basket of roses.
The supper consisted of a salad course,
an ice course, and coffee. Miss Ruth
Crowell, of the Junior class, welcomed
all the guests most graciously. Miss
Elizabeth Gillespie, of the Senior class
and Mr. Linville K. Martin, represent
ing the men, responded with very at
tractive speeches. Dr. Rondthaler,
speaking as guest and host at the
same time, addressed those present in
his usual charming and entertaining
way. Eight couples, dressed in
colonial costumes, danced the minueV,
and Miss Virginia Dunklee did a most
graceful and charming solo dance on a
grass covered stage furnished by a
natural incline. At the conclusion of
supper confetti was distributed, and
mirth reigned supreme.
Music for the occasion was furnish
ed by the Robert E. Lee Orchestra.

ATHLETIC MEET AT SALEM
Series of Games and Contests Were
Carried Out Last Week.
Salem College, following the belief
of all A-1 colleges, attributes part of
its success to the fact that it gives its
students well rounded development
along mental, moral and physical
lines. Under the head of physical up
building, great strides have been made
in athletics this year, considered one
of the most successful in the history
of the college. The girls have entered
enthusiastically into the following
sports; tennis singles, walking, basket
ball, hockey, tennis doubles, volley
ball, baseball and track.
The entire College and Academy
celebrated last Monday afternoon in
honor of the third great athletic event
of the year, the playing of the volley
ball and baseball games and the\ track
meet. Volleyball was played first on
the upper campus, and aided by the
always necessary rooters, the Junioi-
Freshman team versus the Senior-
Sophomore players earned a hard-
fought battle, for at the end of the
first game, the score stood 15-4, and
at the close of the second, 15-3. The
outstanding stars of the Junior-
Freshman team were Rulfs, who dicf
splendid work at the net, Schaffner
and Jenkins. The Senior-Sophs fought
bravely in spite of the odds against
them and aided by Turlington and
